#1 A New Year

Just for fun 🙂 This is a personal blog where I hope to write about various things that interest me throughout the year. I have no specific content plans, I just want to see what unfolds as the days go by. Carnet, is French for notebook. 365 is the number of days in the year…

#174 Reflection

I had the chance to spend time with longtime friends over the weekend. Some I hadn’t seen for many years. The reason for the gathering was the engagement celebrations for one of the kids. Now grown up and the same age as my eldest. It was such a truly heartwarming occasion and filed me with…

#172 Headache

New medicine has meant a huge headache. Thankfully, that only started after lunch time. It’s another medication to try and tame my unruly blood pressure. Instead my blood pressure, being the complete drama queen that she is, decided to skyrocket. My heart rate, her better looking sister, followed suit. I give up! I’m going to…

#171 Gordon Bingeing

Today has been so full. Mostly good things. Unfortunately I have been given another medication to take. I suppose I could look at it as being fortunate because it’s necessary to prevent another visit from Randy, you remember Randy? The name I gave to the stroke I had in November 2018? Well anyway that’s the…

#170 Sweet Dreams

All I can think about is going to sleep. I’m definitely low on energy and it seems Mama’s advice of taking a multivitamin everyday is not helping 😉 Of course, I won’t be mentioning that to her 🙂 Hopefully your corner of the world is safe and peaceful. xo

#169 Nothing to see here.

I remember last year joking about making myself a t-shirt proclaiming “Gordon is Life” on the front. It was during a time when I was watching Gordon Ramsay videos on YouTube with my kids and also alone. I watched numereous episodes of Hotel Hell and Kitchen Nightmares, peppered with episodes of Hell’s Kitchen too. As…

#168 Things I want to do…

I’ve never had a bucket list and I don’t really like bucket as the name of my own personal list, because I don’t like the sound of it. Anyway for me it’s more of a collection of experiences I’d like to have during my life. Yes, yes I know it’s the same thing as having…

#167 Feeling Peaky

Time for an early night. Feeling exhausted. It’s easy to forget to take care of myself by taking myself for granted. I started a new book so I’ll spend some time reading 🙂

#166 The Weir

We went for a drive into the hills to visit Mundaring Weir. It was nice to get out of suburbia and into the bush to be surrounded by trees and green rolling hills. We even saw some kangaroos wandering around. We had some ice cream and even enjoyed the drive. It’s nice to do something…

#165 Cats

As I’ve expressed before, I love cats. I mean I love my dog too of course! But this post is about appreciating the gift that cats are to human existence. I’m so grateful for them in my life. xo
